We have not been to Catch in a few years. Shame on us because there is nothing so good as to spend a couple of hours just laughing, especially with all the hate in the world. Catch used to kind of funky venue but no one seemed mind because it was dark most of the time. Now, the space has... More

If New Jersey had this at more places, I would die of laughter. Lots of good stand-up comedians come here to keep themselves fresh and lively. Just come here to see a star in the making in your opinion.

Stood in line for an hour to get into a conference room in the basement of a hotel, the show is supposed to start at 9:30 it's 10:05 and we're still waiting? After we got going at 10:15, the comedians came out and were FUNNY which is really the most important thing. Plan on spending $100.00 for the whole thing... More

Had dinner, drinks & saw Bobby Collins. Went with another couple. Great time! Service is okay in the Lounge/Bar area. Nice ambiance.

I used to come here monthly years ago and was excited to come back after a few years hiatus. I see its been 'remodeled'? What was a dark, cool, comfy, basement comedy club is now just a conference room by day and a conference room with comedians at night. Sorry guys but the luster is gone. The comedy was good,...

This Club has recently been renovated. Nice high club tables down each side and two long tables down the middle. Visited with 6 of my friends $20pp tkt and 2 drink minimum, 2 show times weekends. Great for date or group get together.

If you have nothing else to do on a Saturday night and want to kill two hours of your life I STILL wouldn't tell you to go here. Get a root canal, clean your sock drawer, call your ex-inlaws, you'll have more fun. This was like some kind of weird out of body experience. B rate actors singing old Elvis,... More

We have been to this comedy club 4 times thus far. It is a hit or miss in terms of enjoyment/entertainment since the big names in headliners seem to disappoint us since their jokes are repeats from previous shows you see on their websites or youtube videos. Why do they recycle their jokes so much. We much prefer the not... More

Went here for the first time last night and not really sure I'll ever go back. I paid $69 + fees and tax for VIP seating and while I was right at the edge of the stage I could have saved $30 and bought general admission. The venue is very small, the menu is overpriced, few items worth purchasing and... More

We used to go to this Comedy Club all the time a few years ago and had alot of fun and watched some great comedians. Went back and was surprised that only a few people showed up on a Friday night. Apparently the Hyatt is going through some renovations. We were also told the comedy club was shutting down for... More
